Happy Mother's Day!!!

Today I am sharing Lil Koodles - Valentine Panda Baby in more than one way. Kadoodlebug Designs files are so versatile. Although this file says, "Valentine," I am using it for Mother's Day.
I have attached it to a cascade card and to a box to use as gifts for Mother's Day. 
What will you use your files for?

The cascade card is from Dreaming Tree. 
I added the word Mother to the heart to personalize it.

The patterned paper is from Heidi Swapp. 
The box is from Creative Kuts. 
It holds a box of cards for your special mom to give to her friends.

Hope you enjoyed your day with your mothers.

Kadoodlebug Designs You Are My Squishy

Today I have created a card and layout using the file You Are My Squishy.
 I used paper from DCWV that looks like water with the moon shining on it.
 I added a tiny bow from a ribbon with small hearts on it.
I use The Ultimate from Crafter's Companion to tie it.
 For the card, I used the extra octopus I had left over from the layout. 
I cut a card and the octopus with the saying All Hands On Deck from the card base and front picture. I also added a bow like I did on the layout.
I placed the octopus up high enough on the card base so that
it was just barely visible without opening the card. 

The paper is Coordinations. I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers to add sparkle to some of the paper.

Kadoodlebug Designs PTC Spring Chick

I decided to try my hand with a Print then Cut file. I had never done a Print then Cut file. I do not have a printer that can do it. 
So I cheated. I sent the file to a place that could print it for me.
PTC Spring Check has the cutest expression with a flower plopped on its head.

I cut the individual pieces that layered the chick. I then put 3D foam squares on the back of it and placed it on a flower I colored with Spectrum Noir Color Blend pencils. 

Isn't it cute?
Enjoy your spring weather if you are lucky to have it!

Kadoodlebug Designs Eggie Buddies - Carrot Bunnies

It is getting to be the time of year to think bunnies.
Here is my version of the cute Eggie Buddies - Carrot Bunnies
The file can be found here. 
 I thought that this little guy would look cute flocked so I got our my Fun Flock. Fun flock can be found here. The one I used is Stampendous Caramel Latte Tan. 
 A tip to applying it: the difference in the two pieces is that the small paw I ran throw the Xyron and put the flock on the sticky side. The large body was done with Tombow Mono Aqua Glue. I buy mine at Joanns with coupon. It can be found here and many other places.
 I inked the edges a bit with the ColorBox inks and chalks found here. I used the Petal Point ones so I could get a small ink pad to ink where I wanted and a wide ink pad too. They come in many different sets. They are also found in many different places. I used Tombo Mono, Crafter's Companion tape runner and 3 D foam squares to give him dimension. 
Tape runner: here
3D foam squares: here
Xyron: here 

Enjoy creating bunnies!
